to balance the scale. at this point, abbas has a u.n. resolution, about the only thing he has in his camp. he has no -- he's become a dependency, dependent upon foreign aid to sustain an ever-dwindling authority. they have become a police force governing the terrorists. allen, let me finish. they have become a police force governing the territories. but they've gotten no payment back. and this issue is bigger than the west bank. it's about palestinian nationhood, about the right of palestinians to have the same respect as a nation that israel demands for itself. and frankly, that's not on the table. i would say to you that what the u.s. has to do, when the president is done with this trip, come back, hopefully earning the confidence of the israeli people, trying to restore some confidence on the palestinian side, which is lost right now. and then refashion a middle east peace initiative that gives some hope to both sides. right now palestinians don't feel hope at all. >> okay. let me ask you both very quickly and i'll start with you, james zogby, very quickly, if i may. are you optimistic wit
